Red Flashing Lights while charging with Anker

Hello,

 

I just bought a Hero 6, when I try to charge it with my Anker PowerCore 13000 (IQ) the Hero won't charge : red LED are Flashing exactly like this video :

https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/GoPro-Hero-6-Battery-Charging-and-Red-Flashing-Lights-Ideas/t...

 

It charges normally with a wall charger (Like Samsung S7) so I guess the problem comes from the Anker. The output is 3A while those I plug onto the wall one are 2A.

 

Is it too much for the Gopro or is it something else ?

 

Do you have any Idea ?

 

Thank you !
